Dark Horse’s ‘The Orville’ Comics Tell Season 2.5 Stories

by James Ferguson

Dark Horse Comics has announced another comic series set in the world of The Orville. This time around, we’ve got Launch Day, a two-issue series set between seasons 2 and 3 of Seth McFarlane’s TV show. It’s written by The Orville Executive Producer David A. Goodman, illustrated by David Cabeza, and colored by Michael Atiyeh.

The first of these “episodes” starts with The Orville Season 2.5: Launch Day #1 (of two). When seemingly hostile Krill ships cross into Union space, the Orville intercepts. Captain Mercer learns they are en route to a planet that left the Union decades ago, under mysterious circumstances. Scans have discovered a moon-sized construct above the planet, and the Krill intend a preemptive strike against the presumed weapon. But is it?

The Orville Season 2.5: Launch Day #1 is set for release on June 3rd, 2020.
